    Did you mean developers who wrote their own majestic-boombastic fantastic-af css because waiting for designer to make it good looking is taking too much time?

    @mac-aga yep bootstrap too.

    But most of those librairies deal with both old browser compatibility and retro compatibility with their own legacy code.

    Sometimes a !important is better than a breaking change.

    @mac-aga yeah and because of that I sometimes have to add !important to a whole class for it to work. (Because sometimes it's something small which you don't want to recompile the whole CSS files)

    For highly important styles, use
    !importanter or !importantest

    Css is like priorities...
    If everything is !important, nothing actually is...

    Yes, many times. But it had more of a "private key in a public repo" kinda feel to it.
